If you are looking for perfectly precise points in your piecing without a ton of fuss, then foundation paper piecing is a “must have” technique you will want to add to your skill set and quilting portfolio. Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) is a technique used to achieve accurate and uniform seams, and efficiency while working with everything from small projects with odd angles to large quilts with a variety of blocks. FPP is not only for quilters but is also for those looking to add unique design elements to their bags, garments, and handmade gifts. This is a technique course to learn the basics of FPP through the process of completing a FPP quilt block during class. In this class designed for beginners, participants will learn:

  • How to read and follow a printed FPP pattern.
  • How to measure, cut, and sort your fabric for organized sewing.
  • How to build a FPP block in sequential order using the Add-a-Quarter PLUS Ruler for FPP.
  • How to secure and trim your finished block to size.

With the knowledge you learn in this class, you will be able to tackle any foundation paper piecing project with ease and enjoyment!
